Paddle boarding (SUP) event!

To conclude the summer season in style, the events group at Essent IT invited everyone to join an exciting activity: paddle boarding (SUP) along the canals of Den Bosch, starting directly outside our beautiful headquarters!

Over 50 colleagues joined in the fun, forming five lively groups of enthusiastic attendees.

As we navigated the canals, the air was filled with laughter and cheers, contributing to a fantastic atmosphere. The event wasn't just about bonding; it was about having a great time and embracing our adventurous side. We spent the day enjoying the water, creating memories, and strengthening our team spirit. It was an unforgettable day of balance, camaraderie, and shared experiences.

Here’s what some of our colleagues had to say about their experience:

"Cooling down on a hot day, afterwards engineering away!"
Wesley van der Kop, DevOps Engineer

"I loved the SUP event! I barely knew anyone beforehand, but while being on the water I learned a lot of new things about my colleagues. I met some people who I will definitely be in contact with again and I bonded with colleagues over the shared love for Carnaval 😀

One tip: don't listen to your colleagues when they dare you to do any difficult movements on the board!

I hope this will be organised again in the future!"

Sanne van Nistelrooij, Product Owner

We are eagerly anticipating the opportunity to hit the water again next year!
